Laparoscopic or “minimally invasive” surgery is a specialized technique for performing surgery. In the past, this technique was commonly used for gynecologic surgery and for gallbladder surgery. Over the last 10 years, the use of this technique has expanded into intestinal surgery. In traditional “open” surgery the surgeon uses a single incision to enter into the abdomen. Laparoscopic surgery uses several 0.5-1cm incisions. Each incision is called a “port.” At each port, a tubular instrument known as a trochar is inserted.


Hysteroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure which uses a hysteroscope that aids to examine the interior of the uterus along with cervical canal. The hysteroscope is inserted via the vagina and then into the cervical opening which allows visualizing interiors of the uterus, in addition to direct examination of the cervical canal, and vagina. Hysteroscopic surgery can either be operative or diagnostic.

Cosmetic gynecology is a newer branch of surgery which is gaining popularity with increasing awareness among women. It is not uncommon to come across women who are unhappy with their external genitalia.The reason for a woman to approach a surgeon for cosmetic gynecology is multifactorial. Changes due to aging, multiple childbirth, fluctuations in weight can cause weakening of the perineal musculature. This, in turn, leads to changes in the shape of the vagina and labia majora/minora. Cosmetic gynecology is not often medically indicated though it is opted by many women to face their practical difficulties aesthetically and functionally.
